Vintage Swedish Kilim by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom 48505
Vintage Kilim by Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, Sweden, Mid 20th Century — From the rich, playful colors running along the piece’s borders of this vintage rug to the deep, woody background set within, this Swedish kilim sets the ideal stage for a whimsical, earthy scene. Soft pinks, sage greens, goldenrod yellows, creamy beiges and ocher browns are all presented in two rows of tulips gracefully planted within the rug’s center. Rounded portraits in fields of yellow and green frame some tulips, the borders’ rigid structures adding variety and depth in their alternating patterns, standing out against instances of unbordered tulips. Every shape is rendered in the gentle angular detail that defines the movement in Swedish rugs.
